Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to miss BOTH of AC Milan's clashes against Man Utd in Europa League due to injury

ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC will miss BOTH of AC Milan's Europa League games against Manchester United with a groin injury.

The former Red Devil was hoping to play against his old side but will not be available for either leg of the last-16 tie.

The teams meet first at Old Trafford on March 11.

And the second-leg is one week later at the San Siro on March 18.

But Milan boss Stefano Pioli will have to do without his star man for the next three weeks, according to EuroSport.

The Swede, 39, is in blistering form this season with 14 goals in 14 Serie A games.

His side are second in the league – just four points behind bitter rivals Inter who are top.

Ibrahimovic scored 29 goals and provided 10 assists in 53 games for United between 2016 and 2018.

Milan knocked Red Star Belgrade out on away goals in the last-32 after a 3-3 aggregate draw to set up the mouthwatering tie with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

United beat Real Sociedad 4-0 on aggregate to proceed after thrashing the Spaniards by that scoreline in the first-leg.


Ibrahimovic hit headlines last week after criticising basketball superstar LeBron James for getting involved in politics.

The LA Lakers icon, 36, has been a leading voice against police brutality and racism over recent years.

However, Ibrahimovic did not seem impressed as he told the American to ‘do what he’s good at’ instead.

Zlatan's comments received widespread backlash including from James himself who hit back telling the former Barcelona and LA Galaxy star 'I will never shut up'.

Former NBA player Baron Davis also called him 'dumb as hell' and compare him to Adam Sandler's character Zohan.
